Local Car Dealership Teams Up With Local American Cancer Society in Fight Against Breast Cancer
10/10/2015

For every vehicle purchased in October, the dealership will donate $50 to the American Cancer Society in Maryville, Ill.

Online PR News – 10-October-2015 – O'FALLON, Ill. – Jack Schmitt Cadillac is making a difference this month by supporting the local Metro East community members who are battling breast cancer. For every car sold this month, the company will donate $50 to the American Cancer Society located in Maryville, Ill.

Supporting breast cancer awareness is a cause that is important and personal to the organization.

Dorothy Nugent, an employee at the car dealership, recently shared why this cause was so important to her family. Nugent’s sister has been battling the grips of breast cancer for over a year and is undergoing surgeries, chemotherapy treatments, and radiation, a routine that millions of Americans know all too well.

After the last surgery, Nugent’s sister received news that the cancer had been removed and that with radiation treatments and medications, she has the potential to fully recover.

“We need to keep this awareness in front of the public at all times so that hopefully someday they will find what causes breast cancer and will find a cure for this terrible disease,” Nugent said. “It is staggering to know that one in seven women develops breast cancer. Our family is very thankful that she is one of the lucky ones to become a survivor.”

The money that the local dealership is donating will help create more success stories like Nugent’s sister. Donations to the American Cancer Society in Maryville will help fund the groundbreaking research that breast cancer currently needs along with providing free comprehensive information and support to all of those who have encountered this disease.
